    Beautiful bird and equally beautiful picture. Big congrats. For future reference, I hear real men kill their turkeys with a bow. Just sayin....:p

    Keep telling yourself that and I will keep stacking them up with the old 870. I have ZERO interest in hunting turkeys with a bow. :p

    I understand, it is fun to shoot the beak off! But seriously, have you tried the bow? It really is pretty addictive. It takes just a little more scouting, but it really is not that difficult. If you kill them easily with a gun, you can kill them with a bow every year. It does usually take more time in the field though. Congrats on filling both tags!

    I have shot 4 with my bow ... Recovered zero still NO interest in doing it again. I love bowhunting deer and love turkey hunting to much to make it the same Sitting in a blind waiting for one to walk by or using decoys just isn't my thing. The mentality that guys that bow hunt turkeys of them being better than the guns that use shot guns is another thing that really bugs me. Rant over :D

    It's not better. Just different, and usually makes the season last a little longer. lol I think that's why I like it. I have killed over a hundred turkeys total in five states and will guarantee you that bow hunting them is more challenging without a doubt. That does not mean bow hunting them is better or the hunter is better. Likely he just spends more time in the field and eats more tags. When hunting other states, I always gun hunt because I do love to run and gun. I guess I have been extremely lucky to never lose one with the bow and have killed over 20 that way. But, I pass up way more shots than I ever take. Unless its a very close slam dunk, I dont let the arrow go. You definitely have more beautiful country to hunt them in! Congrats again.
